By Bus

To help you plan your journey in and around Conwy county, here are some useful links and information:

Snowdon Sherpa

The Snowdon Sherpa is a bus service that travels around the foot of Snowdon, linking the six main routes that travel up Snowdon, as well as villages, tourist spots and main car parks.

It provides a great service for walkers and climbers, as well as visitors to the area who wish to start their journey and see where it takes them.

Park and Ride

Avoid the very busy and often full car park at Pen y Pass with the Snowdon Sherpa park and ride service from Nant Peris and Penygwryd car parks. Usually operating every Saturday from Easter Saturday to the last Saturday in October. At busy times, extra services run from Llanberis.

Buying a Sherpa ticket

You can buy your ticket on the bus. Single journey tickets are from £2.00 or you can buy a £5.00 day pass which allows you a full day of hop on hop off travelling to as many points as you wish along the Sherpa route in a day.


If you’re not happy with the way a bus or coach operator has handled your complaint, or if you feel that you have not been treated fairly, please contact Bus Users Cymru. They can help with any issue ranging from driver rudeness to a late or early bus.
